The eyedrops reduce pressure inside the eye. The eyelash solution helps eyelashes grow.
LATISSE® solution is a prescription treatment for hypotrichosis used to grow eyelashes, making them longer, thicker and darker.
Manufactured by Allergen, the company that is also the manufacturer of Botox, Latisse® is an eyelash enhancement product. Latisse is the first and the only FDA-approved medication to treat people with the problem of hypotrichosis, a condition where people have far too few eyelashes.
Latisse eyelash application gives the users eyelashes that are fuller, longer, thicker, darker, and more luscious. It is sold with a sterile and disposable applicator. The Latisse solution contains an active ingredient called “Bimatoprost” that is well known for its ability to enhance lash growth. It is an FDA-approved drug that was earlier used to treat eye conditions like glaucoma and also to manage ocular pressure.
A few reviews of Latisse suggest the possibility of some allergic reactions and a few side effects. Some of the side effects include redness and itching of the eye, eye irritation, and dryness. However, these are mild in nature compared to the incredible results and reviews of Latisse. The efficacy of Latisse eyelash treatment can be felt by applying it once a day for at least eight weeks to the base of the upper eyelashes.
On average, the price is found to be around $120. Considering other products in the same category are a lot more expensive than the Latisse eyelash product, this price is definitely reasonable. However, Latisse acts at a relatively slow pace and results take some time to be noticeable.
Earlier, Latisse eyelash solution was marketed in the form of eye drops under the brand name Lumigan. Prior to its approval by the FDA as Latisse, these eye drops were prescribed by eye doctors for treating glaucoma. Later, it was noticed that patients who were being treated for glaucoma observed a noticeable increase in the thickness and length of their eyelashes. Reviews of Latisse show that it can be safely used on the lower lids and eyebrows, although it is not recommended in these areas.
Care must be taken to ensure that the Latisse solution is applied on a clean face without any makeup and without wearing any contact lenses. Latisse reviews show that it helps promote eye lash growth by not only extending the growth phase but also by increasing the number of hairs that sprout. Another thing that is seen from Latisse reviews is that the overall length of the eyelash increased by an amazing 25 percent and the thickness and fullness increased by nearly 106 percent. Moreover, these dramatic results were achieved within a short time span of just sixteen weeks. The Latisse solution was also found to enhance eyelash darkness by 18 percent.
